The Congress Party launched its 'Ghar Ghar Guarantee' campaign on Wednesday from the national capital, in preparation for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections 2024. The initiative aims to engage with over 80 million households nationwide and spread awareness of the party's five guarantees for the upcoming polls.

Jairam Ramesh, Congress General Secretary in Charge of Communications, revealed to ANI that as part of the campaign, party workers and leaders will distribute guarantee cards to 80 million families. These cards outline the party's commitment to its five 'Nyay' (justice) principles that include a total of 25 guarantees, initially announced by Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and Rahul Gandhi during the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra.

"Our 'Ghar Ghar Guarantee' campaign starts here, with the Congress President's participation. Rahul Gandhi will continue it in Wayanad later today. We will distribute guarantee cards to 8 crore families, outlining our 5 'Nyay' principles and 25 guarantees announced during the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra," stated Jairam Ramesh.

Rahul Gandhi filed his nomination papers from Wayanad earlier today for the general elections. He is also poised to hold a roadshow as part of the 'Ghar Ghar Guarantee' campaign.
